A morning at the mall
We looked out the window at breakfast time and this is what we saw. A lovely rainbow after the squall that had just blown through. More squalls and icy winds were expected throughout the day, oh wonderful spring, so we decided we'd tidy up and go into the mall for the day.
There's a long weekend coming up, Labour weekend,
and with it being Friday it was quite busy.
We decided to start at the top and wander our way to the bottom.
There was a little bit of this...
...going on but I was very good and only bought a couple of the bells you can see in the photo. I like to buy my grandkids a Christmas decoration each so got one each for the little boys. The girls are bit older so I try to get them something that teenage girls might enjoy, like blingy handbags or shoes, just for fun. After I bought the bells I was shunted quite smartly out of there, I'm a bit like a magpie when it comes to sparkly things.
Then we went into a big chain store and I came out with this...
...for my daughter who has just moved house.
I put it on my kitchen table to take a picture and now I'm not sure,
I may have to keep it for myself. Hmm. It looks really pretty where it is,
and I was wanting something just for that spot.
Lunch time, so we decided to head over to the Warehouse,
where we get coffee the way we like it, and where a little bit of this...
...was going on. I said to my GKB that we needed to get some of those treats
on the way out just in case we had kids knocking on the door.
But we got home without them. There's time yet though.
There was also a little bit of this...
...happening, so I bought a couple of the tin soldiers
you can see hanging on the rack.
I thought they were cute and there were only 2 sets left,
no good leaving them here, this might be all they get in!
We had a good day out, now to make something quick and easy for tea
and we can put our feet up for the evening.
